Indiana Court of Appeals
Jennifer R. Quinn v. Daniel P. Quinn
Domestic relation. Affirms Marion Superior Court order awarding custody of Jennifer and Daniel Quinn’s son to Daniel Quinn. Finds that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in calculating child support. Finds that the trial court abused its discretion in distributing the Quinn’s property because it did not include the value of all of the assets in the marital pot. Remands with instructions to the trial court to redistribute the Quinn’s property without a hearing.

William Taylor v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Post conviction. Affirms the denial of William Taylor’s petition for post-conviction relief. Finds Taylor failed to show that he was prejudiced by trial counsel’s deficient performance and that the post-conviction court did not err in denying his petition.

Shravan Vudumu v. Namratha Meesala (mem. dec.)
Domestic relation. Remands for the inclusion of Namratha Meesala’s assets in the marital estate. Finds that Meesala presented sufficient evidence to the value of her wedding jewelry and affirms the Bartholomew Superior Court’s decision to credit her testimony in determining the jewelry was worth $16,500. Finds that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in ordering Shravan Vudumu to pay Meesala an equalization payment.
